In 1st Grade Science, students use inquiry and the five senses to learn about and explore the natural world. Students will develop the skills needed to ask questions and seek out answers, including making predictions and observations, collecting data, and organizing data. Students will explore three main domains of inquiry; life science, Earth and space science, and physical science. In life science, students further their understanding of living versus nonliving things and the basic needs of living things. Earth and space science includes the cycles and systems of the natural world, such as rocks, soil, and water. In physical science, students will investigate and classify matter by its properties, predict changes to materials when they are heated and cooled, describe the importance of light, heat and sound energy, and demonstrate that objects move in different ways. Throughout the course, students engage in asking questions, communicating ideas, and using scientific tools.
